Did you try putting another light bulb?
Sorry to sound stupid, but the way you put it sure sounds like that.

I was quick to explain.... i should have gone into more detail... multiple lights and outlets don't work on unrelated circuits, yet others on the same dysfunctional circuits do work... I had 2 seperate handyman/electrician types come to the house yesterday.... both said it was baffling and beyond them and to call someone else.... the second also threw out a promising "..... it would take 10 grand to get this house wired correctly...." sort of unsettling.....

While I'm still open to suggestions, I'll probably start Kokoro Connect soon. Another looks a little too gruesome for me.

"Another" did have some disturbing moments.... but damn was it good. I really enjoyed it right from the door. The only other thing that really translate that "mood" to me was playing corpse party on the PSP. Such a rare delicacy that particular flavor of horror is....

Finished the first 24 eps of "A Certain Magical Index".... i'm interested to see where they go with this based on where they have already went.... I hope stiyl gets some more screen time-lol

In the interest of catching up on some "must see" stuff I'm finally going to watch steins gate after being rather dissapointed in chaos: head.... I say "must see" because I "must see" how freakin' convoluted and non-sensical this ends up being.... but hey, who knows... maybe I'll be presently surprised....

On a completely different note... I realized I have never indulged any shonen titles.... I have always more or less just researched specific stuff that it seemed like I would like... never watched any anime on TV or anything since dragon ball z was on fox when I was like 8 years old or something... As such I'm wondering what I've been missing out on and thinking of checking out a couple episodes of bleach, mostly because I just want some background to give the dynasty warrior-like game a try..... this could prove a fools errand... time will tell I suppose

Made it to chapter 7 in hyperdimension mk2, locking in my route to the true end in one play-through!!! soooooooo stoked!

My adventures in hyrule are proving a bit lackluster.... I now remember why I haven't played a zelda game in so long.... the gameplay rocks and all, but damn... talk about lather rinse repeat.... I'm going to continue with it as I feel compelled to see twilight princess through to the end, but it certainly doesn't feel terribly pressing.....

I'm thinking I may turn TP into a "weekend only" title and get to another backlog throughout the week, either agarest 2 or wild arms alter code f..... or maybe I'll just say screw it for now, polish off Lego LOTR for the hell of it and wait for Ni No Kuni in 2 weeks... although I have been toying around with the idea of finally going back to xenosaga and getting through episode 2 (insanity, I know....)

wow.... what an unpleasant morning.... i went to vacuum and it tripped a circuit.... or so I thought.... checked the circuits, none were tripped yet the lights won't come back on... called electrician......electrician comes and says "this is beyond me, you gotta call someone more experienced".....

but I remain grateful... why you ask? well, oddly enough all my game systems, computer and refrigerator all have power (this is what confused the hell out of the electrician).... so I think I'm simply going to ignore the problem and play games and whatnot in the dark for a few days.... i have two major tattoos and hyperdimension neptunia mk2 to tend to this week.... the lights can wait-LoL

I wound up snagging this the other day. I love complicated systems for reverse engineering and my wife, for goodness knows what reason, finds the style of humor hilarious (either that or she enjoys watching my brain melt occasionally XD ). Did some research into the DLC if you're still wondering Klyde. It's nothing extensive but here's some baseline info:

Lonely Goddess Set
Black Cat Ears Atk & Mnd 6%
Black Eyepatch Agi 12%
Noire's Clear Dress Def & Int 9%
Noire's Clear Garter Int & Agi 9%
Noire's Clear Boots Atk & Tec 9%

CPU Candidate set

Brain Controller Int & Tec 6%
Purple Frames HP & Def 6%
Nepgear Sailor Dress SP, Mnd & Tec 6%
Pink Striped Band Atk & Agi 9%
Nepgear Boots Def & Tec 9%

Console Patron Unit set
Twin brain Controller Def & Mnd 6%
Toast Def 12%
Neptune Hoodie Dress HP, Atk & Agi 6%
Blue Striped Band Int & Tec 9%

Mugen Knight Set
Decorative Ribbon Mnd 10%

Overwhelming Conquering Set

Prestige Makeup Mnd 10%
Conquering Blazer HP & Atk 5%, Tec 7%
Conquering Skirt Atk & Int 5%, Agi 7%
Conquering Slip-ons SP & Agi 4%, Int 9%

That is awesome info my friend!!! I can't thank you enough! I really had no clue what the sets were at all and I get scared to research anything elsewhere for fear of unintentionally learning about and spoiling other aspects of the game (always happens to me.... I look up something benign and randomly stumble across mega-spoilers every time..... that is why I stick around here.... a good, intelligent, spoiler-free community is tough to find these days)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_games_that_use_the_Classic_Controller

That is a good start point.  Obviously there are a lot of games that use the wiimote that aren't motion, but that's neither here nor there.

Also, don't discount the motion so much.  Trauma Team is one of the best games out there.

I'm not saying motion control is necessarily a bad thing... it is simply waaaay to outside the realm of my "gaming comfort zone" for me to enjoy... I have given them a try multiple times... they just "feel" different to me... its tough for me to explain....

And as an aside, I chain smoke like a bastard while playing and every single time I try to play games with motion control I end up getting ashes all over myself!! LoL

Thanks for the lists/suggestions guys :)

I have wanted to play Vay again for years.... I can hardly remember it from when I was a kid, but I do remember NOT completing it and being pissed off that I didnt..... certainly not the most enticing thing available on IPads, but that will be my first go-to title when I finally indulge.

Re: the Zelda conversation.  It's like with some albums.  You dislike them when they first come out because they're not like the precursor, but years later you realize that it's brilliant.  A lot of people weren't really feeling the Tool album Lateralus when it first came out because it wasn't as good as Aenima, but years later people realize that the album is absolutely fantastic.  It had to grow on me, but grow on me it did and I think it's an even better album than Aenima.

As for my gaming, I'm playing Code of Princess.  Stylish, mindless fun, and it has Zozo- the cutest anime zombie girl since Rottytops in Shantae.  

I just started Code of Princess two night ago! First thing that managed to make me find time for my 3ds is awhile now.... Not exactly the meatiest title but damn is it fun in short spurts between drawings and tattoos at work.... art style is so tailored to my personal taste its damn near impossible for me not to like this... I'm really digging the soundtrack too.

on the Zozo note, I wish she was a little faster and more fluid to play as... I instantly wanted to play as her as soon I saw her!!... however i gotta say, the gameplay feels a lot more rewarding with other characters, which is a bummer...

Also any Gamecube game provided you have an earlier model of the Wii (which you probably don't given the purpose of this thread).

I actually lucked out and ended up with 2 older backward compatable white wii's.... a client traded me them for tattoo-time-LoL.... that is why I'm asking actually, because all I've used them for is playing gamecube and snes titles..... they are also great for playing other consoles titles as well but I don't think it is kosher to get into discussing that, so I'm gonna lay that to rest there....

So having exhausted everything from yester-year worth playing (with the exception of skies of arcadia) I thought I should get a "wii" bit more current with nintendo-- HarHarhar.... (that was a lame joke, just in case you didn't catch it)
1030  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Atelier Ayesha on: January 06, 2013, 11:19:45 AM
Yeah, he really has no one to blame but himself.
We all told Klyde to skip Rorona but he just wouldn't listen...

Heck, even Gust is skipping it with their Vita re-releases.  They did Totori, are working on Meruru, but haven't said a peep about re-releasing Rorona.

What can I say guys... when your right, your right...... however that advice wasn't requested by me or given by you until I had already sunk 15 hours into the game.... my compulsive/completionist nature got the better of me.... can't you forgive a guy for being a bit disordered???? LoL
I liked Rorona, but I also liked the older titles, which were even stricter; somehow I've a feeling they wouldn't be too popular around here.

Ayesha's story is, on the surface, somewhat similar to Totori's. Ayesha lives alone after her guardian died and her sister "disappeared" while out. One day, while she's collecting ingredients, she thinks she sees her sister, thus, provoking her to go search for clues to her fate.

On a related note, if anyone's interested:
http://www.amazon.com/Atelier-Artworks-Arland-Gust/dp/1926778634/

I adored the more "standard adventure" atelier series on the ps2.... I still need to finish that as well, but atelier iris (in spite a very lacking narrative) was a very enjoyable title in most respects by my standards.... In fact I am quite certain I will go back to, and polish off all the ps2 titles (including the mana khemias) before returning to arland.....

I can understand that. Rorona was my first atelier game and even though I liked it, you can tell there arw some rough edges. However the improvements from Rorona to Totori are huge.
Since you are still burned out of Rorona, I'd say drop it and whenever you find Totori or Meruru for a good price give them a chance.

As a whole, I think Meruru is the better game but as a character and motivations I go with Totori. her relationship with Mimi is too good to miss!

As for Ayeasha, anybody knows what the main plot is about? I heard a little about a missing sister but I'm not even sure anymore. What I really paid attention to was the new artwork which is lovely.

No trouble finding the titles... I am a limited edition addict (referencing my disordered nature once again), perpetually scared by missing out on some Nisa exclusives in the past.... as a result I managed to collect the limited edition of every NA release of an atelier title since Iris on the ps2....I have been tempted to crack open meruru for my barrel t-shirt but that is part of the fun when I decide to start the game-LoL

As for Ayesha's story and plot, from what I understand, reuniting with the missing sister is the long and the short of it.... Beyond that all I have read is that Ayesha herself is an herbalist who's grandfather died.... literally guys.... that is all the story details given on the wiki....
1031  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: wii games that don't require motion controller on: January 05, 2013, 05:26:48 PM
I know Klonoa doesn't, and NSMBWii's may be mild enough to tolerate it (DKCR set off a lot of people though). Monster Hunter as well, though if you have a 3DS/Wii U you might want to wait on Ultimate, especially Wii U as that'll have online play. Rune Factory Frontier also supports the Classic Controller, so that's another one.

Actually, a quick and dirty way to figure it out is to look for a list of games that support the Classic Controller, you'll miss some like a Little King's Story that uses the Wii Remote + Nunchuk but doesn't bother with motion control or even the pointer, but that'd still hit a lot of them. And if you're open to JUST pointer use that may open your options by a lot.

Thanks for the tip my man! Completely forgot about Rune Factory..... see, thats why I asked!... I sort of turned a blind eye to everything that was happening on the wii....
1032  Media / Miscellaneous Games / wii games that don't require motion controller on: January 05, 2013, 03:24:35 PM
so with the wii on its way out, titles are getting cheaper and cheaper.... I never fleshed out my wii library on account of... well.... I freakin' hate motion control.... soooooo, does anyone have any suggestions (outside of VC and gamecube titles) that don't require it?? Xenoblade and Last story aside (they are actually the only two already in my wii library-lol)
1033  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: January 05, 2013, 03:20:41 PM


Don't forget about the plot that suddenly changes gears going from a new take on an old setting to "And heeeerrree's Ganon!".

........ if this wasn't zelda (and consequently ganon) we were talking about, that could qualify as a spoiler....

Zelda, by the way, is going smoothly.... I still don't care for link... but I am loving the mood of this game.... much more evolved and mature realm from the hyrule I remember as a kid....

As Hyper Dimension Mk2.... I'm freakin' obsessed.... unfortunately I just discovered that my lily ranks are not high enough to net the true ending yet.... and I'm pretty sure that chapter 6 won't have enough chirper events to pull it off... meaning I need to face facts and accept the harsh reality that I can't achieve true end in one play-through or grind the hell out of characters I have ignored.... not thrilled about this fact... 
1034  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Atelier Ayesha on: January 05, 2013, 11:34:18 AM
I never got to meruru myself....actually I didn't get to totori either... I was late coming to arland with rorona last summer (burned myself out on the title to be completely honest...) and haven't gone back yet... I still have both LE's unopened on my shelf beckoning though....

I'm happy that Ayesha is the start of a new set of atelier titles, as I really want to jump into this when it arrives in NA but I've got more pressing titles to tend to before I return to arland I'm afraid... I know totori and meruru are waaay improved over rorona but damn.... rorona left a baaaaaad taste in my mouth I won't soon forget....
1035  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Atelier Ayesha on: January 04, 2013, 03:52:44 PM
http://www.siliconera.com/2013/01/04/tecmo-koei-bringing-atelier-ayesha-to-north-america/

Finally a bit of news on the western release.... so its coming but they don't know who is providing it?.... This confuses me a bit as I didn't know the designing team behind a game switching hands had anything to do with who localizes it and by the same token I also thought the publisher was a different question entirely....

No matter, in truth none of those details are relevant to me.... what is relevant is the projected "rumor release date" of early march conflicting with hyperdimension V...... and just watch, Tales of Xilia will come out within a month or two of both of the aforementioned titles to ensure my brain explodes and i have to set up a payment arrangement with the electric company to fund my gaming habbit-LoL
